Bobby Knechtel



I’m more or less a native of Charlotte and  have been playing sports and been a “fitness junkie” my whole life. It wasn’t until college that I was introduced to CrossFit, and I was immediately hooked.

After training with great athletes in college I returned to Charlotte where I spent some time training on my own, bouncing from gym to gym. I eventually teamed up with and have been coaching with Brendan coach at a variety of CrossFit facilities in Charlotte for several years now.

I have been practicing CrossFit for nearly five years and coaching for about three. I love working with and meeting people from all walks of life.

The enjoyment for me comes from watching people develop and do things they never thought possible. I don’t care if you are a CrossFitter, sports specific athlete, soccer mom, 9 to 5 worker, or a beer drinking friend; amazing things are possible for people who are willing to put in the work.

Over the course of my time training and coaching, having spent a period training alone, the importance of the CrossFit family will always hold a special place in my heart.
